A round dozen!
If we were given to pinching ourselves, we would have been black and blue all over, as we pleasurably contemplate the occasion of Bookaroo's 12th edition in New Delhi. Well, here we are ready to present the 38th overall edition of Bookaroo from the time we began in November 2008.
If staying right side up for 11 years is an achievement, the credit goes entirely to the authors, illustrators, storytellers, craftspeople, sponsors, arts councils, publishers, partners, designers, volunteers, friends, parents and the children. Their undiminished enthusiasm edition after edition - in many cases, even after they have outgrown the festival - has kept us going.
Our heartfelt thanks to Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) for keeping the faith and collaborating with Bookaroo ever since the festival moved into the grounds in 2010.
The dates for Bookaroo Delhi 2019 are November 30th and December 1st at IGNCA, Dr Rajendra Prasad Road.
